THE FORGER’S TALE Fri 7th July 2017 7pm
Forgery, Fakery and Footsteps in Horndon
Floorboard fitter flummoxed as felonious forger foiled!
A leisurely stroll around this historic village, hearing tales of the colourful inhabitants and its historic buildings.
It included ‘The Forger’s Tale’ a humorous, theatrical performance of a story inspired by two of Horndon on the Hill’s most notorious characters – William and Lillian Green who under the disguise of noisy parties, forged half crowns. Their final embrace with the law was recaptured with comedic license by The Complete Commedia Company.

About Thurrock 100
In 2016, with the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England, Kinetika collected stories and conversations about Thurrock and its history in the Thurrock 100 Stories book.
This year, Thurrock 100 is performing some of those stories on location using The Complete Commedia Company’s irreverent comic style.
The stories will be performed as part of a walking tour over three days in one weekend. The Thurrock characters and their stories have been linked by location and woven together to create a narrative which is led by one of the principal characters from the book.
With masks by Strangeface, costumes by students from SEC and original scripts and songs by The Complete Commedia Company, Thurrock 100 Tales is a celebration of Thurrock, its places and its people.
Thurrock 100 is a Kinetika project.
